Department of the Navy, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery | Published August 6, 2014 - Deadline August 21, 2014
The Naval Medical Logistics Command intends to negotiate on a sole source basis (IAW FAR 13.1) with PCB Piezotronics, Inc., 3425 Walden Ave, Depew, NY, 14043-2417, 716 926-8243, as the only responsible source that can provide Type 1 sound level meters for audiometer calibration. These sound level meters are for multiple Navy Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs).
The requirement is for seven (7) sound level meters for various Navy commands. The meter shall be a hand-held, Type 1 sound level meter for audiometer calibration. The meter shall be capable of real-time 1/3 octave frequency analysis. It shall measure the following parameters: run time, Lmin (minimum sound level), Lmax (maximum sound level), SPL (sound pressure level), integrated Lavg/Leq (average sound pressure level), Lpk (peak sound level), TAKT3/5, TWA (time weighted average), SE (sound exposure), dose, C - A, and elapsed time in A, C, and flat filters. The meter shall function with fast and slow response and exchange rates of 3 and 5 dB. The meter shall be able to store over 2,000 Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) snapshots. The meter shall have an octave band frequency range inclusive of 13 Hz to 20kHz for the 1/3 octave. The meter shall be able to reach below 3Hz for the FFTs. The device shall be compliant with the following standards: IEC61672-1 (2002) Class 1, IEC60804 (1985) Type I, IEC60651 (1993), IEC61260 (1995) Class I, ANSI Sl.4-1983, and ANSI Sl.l1- 1985- Type lD. The meter shall have at least seven (7) hours of operation between battery charges. The meter should weigh less than 550 grams. The equipment shall include the appropriate calibrator. The equipment should come with a sturdy carrying case.
Vendor shall be an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) authorized dealer, authorized distributor or authorized reseller for the proposed equipment/system such that OEM warranty and service are provided and maintained by the OEM. All software licensing, warranty and service associated with the equipment/system shall be in accordance with the OEM terms and conditions.
Based on the above information, the only technically acceptable system is provided by PCB Piezotronics.
